Johann Jacquir Isaac (59) appeared in the Upington Magistrate’s Court on Wednesday (24/10) for allegedly defrauding a deceased’s estate.

He had been arrested the day before.

Isaac, who had been appointed as the executor of an estate, allegedly defrauded the deceased’s estate by changing the beneficiary banking details to his own.

The money, amounting to over R300 000, was paid into his account, which was contrary to the will of the deceased.

Following an intensive investigation by the Hawks’ Serious Commercial Crime Investigating Unit, Isaac was arrested in Upington.

The suspect has been released on a warning and he is expected back in court on Wednesday (28/11).
